Complementary methods have played an increasingly important role in oncology treatments, showing benefits such as a higher quality of life, reduced instance and severity of the side effects of standard therapy and a general improvement of the patient’s immunological state. Indeed these methods – from carefully monitored nutrition, exercise and psychological support, to enzyme substitution, phytotherapy, hypterthermia and microbiology therapy – are critical to a treatment’s overall success. In this book, experts ranging across medical disciplines present accurate, up-to-date information on the efficacy of these methods as they are currently being used, the necessary scientific background and practical advice for introducing them into current biomedical practice. With illustration, tables and detailed descriptions, this book is an ideal reference and an invaluable tool for educating both doctor and patient. Throughout, the contributors emphasize the latest scientifically and clinically tested treatments. A useful chart lays out in detail which treatments are applicable for various types of cancers and what effects they have been shown to induce.
